[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Function RetrievePublicQueriesByType(
  ByVal Caller As CUserAuth,
  ByVal ReturnedType As ObjectType(),
  ByVal QueryTypes As SAVED_QUERY_TYPE(),
  ByVal ColumnSet As String
) As String
public string RetrievePublicQueriesByType(
  CUserAuth  Caller,
  ObjectType[]  ReturnedType,
  SAVED_QUERY_TYPE[]  QueryTypes,
  string  ColumnSet
public: String* RetrievePublicQueriesByType(
  CUserAuth*  Caller,
  ObjectType  ReturnedType __gc[],
  SAVED_QUERY_TYPE  QueryTypes __gc[],
  String*  ColumnSet



Specifies the identity of the caller. The caller must have the prvReadQuery privilege to perform this action. See CUserAuth.


Specifies an array of object types for which queries are to be retrieved. See ObjectType.


Specifies an array of query types. See SAVED_QUERY_TYPE.


Specifies an XML string describing the set of columns that is to be retrieved. Passing "" or null returns all columns. You can find the valid column names in savedquery.xsd. See also ColumnSetXML Schema.

Return Value

Returns a String type that specifies the XML data representing the set of queries associated with the specified query return type for security principals with READ privileges. The fields that are returned depend on what fields are specified in the ColumnSetXML parameter. The XML schema is described by savedquery.xsd.


If there is an error, SOAP throws an exception and the error message is reported in System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException.Detail.OuterXml.

All IDs passed to the platform are GUIDs wrapped in braces. For example: {6522D89A-A752-4455-A2B0-51494C6957C3}
